Daily D – Hebrews 7:25
Hebrews 7:25 Therefore he is able to save completely those who come to God through him, because he always lives to intercede for them. (NIV)
Romans 8:31-35 What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things? Who will bring any charge against those whom God has chosen? It is God who justifies. Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died—more than that, who was raised to life—is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us. Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall trouble or hardship or persecution or famine or nakedness or danger or sword? (NIV)
Who is praying for you? (Luke 22:32; Romans 8:26-35; Hebrews 7:25)
Stand up. (Hebrews 7:25)
Stand strong. (Luke 22:32)
Stand confidently. (Hebrews 4:15, 16)
Withstand everything. (Romans 8:26-35)
With Jesus, enter into the halls of ultimate justice with confidence. (Hebrews 10:19-25)
Christmas is a bigger gift than we have ever considered. Because of who Jesus is and what he has done for us, and what he is doing even now, we can live boldly, confidently, and delightfully above and beyond the problems of our lives. In each circumstance, no matter how dire, Jesus is working on our behalf to deliver us from temptation and sin and its consequences. He is working on our behalf to strengthen us for all he asks of us. He is cleansing us so that we can enter into our Father’s perfect presence. He is empowering us for everything the evil one hurls against us.
Nothing can separate us from his loving, saving, keeping, empowering presence (Romans 8:37-39).
So once in every universe, a gift is given which is truly one size fits all. But only once. And once is all that is necessary.
I will celebrate the one gift I needed most and need to share with everyone I meet.
Our Father, salvation, sanctification, and satisfaction each are aspects of the gift you have given to all who will receive it. You give us all we need day by day and moment by moment to live lives full of meaning and purpose. You are more engaged in our lives than we have imagined. You are more interested in our highest and best than we have considered. How could we not celebrate? Amen.

Deuteronomy 8:12-18 When you eat and are full, and build beautiful houses to live in, and your herds and flocks grow large, and your silver and gold multiply, and everything else you have increases, be careful that your heart doesn’t become proud and you forget the Lord your God who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the place of slavery. He led you through the great and terrible wilderness with its poisonous snakes and scorpions, a thirsty land where there was no water. He brought water out of the flint rock for you. He fed you in the wilderness with manna, which your ancestors had not known, in order to humble and test you, so that in the end he might cause you to prosper. You may say to yourself, ‘My power and my own ability have gained this wealth for me,’ but remember that the Lord your God gives you the power to gain wealth, in order to confirm his covenant he swore to your ancestors, as it is today.
Deuteronomy 6:4-9 “Listen, Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. These words that I am giving you today are to be in your heart. Repeat them to your children. Talk about them when you sit in your house and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up. Bind them as a sign on your hand and let them be a symbol on your forehead. Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your city gates.“
Deuteronomy 1:2, 3 It is an eleven-day journey from Horeb to Kadesh-barnea by way of Mount Seir. In the fortieth year, in the eleventh month, on the first of the month, Moses told the Israelites everything the Lord had commanded him to say to them.
